Pushkar Travel Guide: 11 Things to Do in Pushkar

Pushkar felt different. From the moment I arrived, it felt unlike anywhere else I had visited in Rajasthan. This is one of the oldest cities in India, and one of the holiest on the planet.  And yet, it felt so laid-back — laid-back for India, anyway. Pushkar is a beautiful small city, situated around a sacred lake, and has long been a major pilgrimage destination for Hindus. In the 1960s, however, Pushkar developed into a popular spot on the infamous Hippie Trail, and attracts just as many spiri...

Luxury hotels in Rajasthan, India

No place in India exemplifies the spirit of monarchy and the splendor of royalty better than the state of Rajasthan. The very name contains royalty: Raja translates to “king” and sthan refers to “place” in Hindi and other Indian languages. When the British left India, there were about two dozen princely states in the region, which merged into the new Union of India, along with other princedoms around the country. The erstwhile royalty was allowed to retain their properties and was granted an...

The Ultimate Guide to India’s Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle is a popular tourist circuit in Northern India.  In fact, it’s the most popular part of the country for visitors. It encompasses the triangular region between New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur, with every city located around 125 miles from the others.  These days, the Golden Triangle receives a bit of a mixed write-up and before I touched down in Delhi, I was fully expecting to be disappointed by my week there.  I’m not a fan of tourist-filled destinations, and I’d read plenty of a...

The Cost of Travel in India: A Detailed Budget Breakdown

India is one of the cheapest countries I’ve ever travelled to.  But not only that, it’s one of the best value places I’ve visited.  Value is important when it comes to travel. There’s no joy in spending $5 on a dorm bed if it’s frequented by cockroaches and dengue-carrying mosquitoes and leads to nothing but stress. Similarly, paying $100 a night for a basic guesthouse with few amenities is never going to be a highlight of any adventure.  In India, I couldn’t stop talking about how much value I ...

12 Reasons Why I Absolutely Loved Rajasthan

How to begin writing about my life-changing trip to Rajasthan? I’ve spent the past week wrestling with just that, trying to figure out which blog post to write first. I can’t remember taking a trip that blew my mind so much as my three weeks in Rajasthan did, and I’m both speechless and stumbling over sentences in a frantic desire to share just how wonderful this part of the world is.  I absolutely adored my time in India’s desert-filled state.  I think it’s best, then, to focus exactly on that,...

December 2019: Travel Summary and Statistics

If you’ve been following along with my social media updates, you may have seen that I kicked off New Year’s Day with a sudden hospitalisation in New Zealand. After surviving one of the worst moments of my life, it feels surreal to now switch gears and turn my thoughts back to December.  Because December really was fantastic. It was one of the best travel months I’ve ever had. So let’s focus on that.  Riding the Indian rails was such a fun way to experience the country When I left you last...

How Not to Spend a Day in Jaipur

It took less than a week in India for me to make my first mistake.  Despite researching for so long about how to make my time in the Golden Triangle the best ever, I still managed to screw up.  You see, when I began to read about Jaipur, I came to two realisations: there’s so much I want to see in this city, but I also don’t want to spend more than a day there. This traffic-clogged city sounded like somewhere I wouldn’t warm to, and yet, it had so many world-class attractions that I wanted to se...

November 2019: Travel Summary and Statistics

Namaste from India! My friends, I finally got on the plane. I finally made it to my dream travel destination after years of planning and half a dozen cancelled trips.  Was it worth the wait? You bet it was! I’m absolutely in love with India and can’t believe it took me so long to get here.  But let’s start at the beginning of the month. I kicked off November doing much the same as I did last month: bouldering my heart out! It turns out that I am well and truly obsessed with climbing, and I’m s...

7 Under the Radar UNESCO World Heritage Sites I Love to Visit

I don’t normally make it the focus of my travels, if there’s an opportunity for me to visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site, I always make sure I stop. In 1972 the UN, through the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, began recognizing important sites around the world that they consider vital in order to maintain the cultural and natural heritage we have all inherited. Even though I haven’t even scratched the surface of visiting the more than 1,000 sites in every corner of the planet, I have been to qu...

Pushkar: Beyond Fairs and Festivities

The sun was about to set and it spread its golden glow all over the sky. There were people who soaked themselves in the surrounding serenity, couples who enjoyed their moments, kids ran everywhere, a juggler entertained the people, a dancer enjoyed the trance music, a few performed yoga, cows strolled around and there were photographers who captured each of these frames.  That’s how tranquil my evenings were in Pushkar. This small town in Rajastahan comes alive during the yearly Pushkar fe...

Places to visit and things to do in Bikaner

If one makes a list of must visit places in the state of Rajasthan, Bikaner might struggle to make it to that list. Bikaner might lack the exuberance of Jaisalmer, the hues of Jodhpur, the vibrancy of Udaipur, the festivities of Pushkar or the popularity of Jaipur. However, the city which was once the capital of the princely state of Bikaner was founded in late 15th century by Rao Bika, who was until then a member of the Jodhpur royal family. Structures such as the fort, palaces and other...

Solo Female Travel in India — Is it Safe?

Solo female travel to India is much more popular than you might think. In some ways, India is actually a very good destination for solo female travel, despite all the warnings and dire media reports. I’ve spent many years traveling solo in India, and I now live there – in Rishikesh, which is an ideal destination for a solo female traveler interested in Yoga. (It’s called the Yoga capital of the world!) Having said that, I know that as much as I love India, and the adventure of traveling there, ...

Golden Temple at dawn, Amritsar. That’s where some of the lesser known places in northern India like Amritsar, Dharamshala and McLeod Ganj, and Shimla come in. These destina...

Ajmer: Dargah and Beyond

The namaz (prayer time) was over and the road which until that moment was filled with people offering prayers, eased up a little. I still had to rub shoulders and make my way through the crowded road that led to the shrine. I went past numerous shops and stalls selling myriad items such as flowers, caps, fabrics, snacks, sweets, tea etc. A waft of the fresh flowers and incense sticks from the shops took me further ahead to the entrance of Dargah Sharif in Ajmer. While I visited the Darga...
